Review of Tattered Loyalties by Carrie Ann Ryan

Tattered-Loyalties-Cover-vFinal-72dpi-200x300

When the great war between the Redwoods and the Centrals occurred three decades ago, the Talon Pack risked their lives for the side of good. After tragedy struck, Gideon Brentwood became the Alpha of the Talons. But the Pack’s stability is threatened, and he’s forced to take mate—only the one fate puts in his path is the woman he shouldn’t want.

Though the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson has known peace for most of her life. When she finds the man who could be her mate, she’s shocked to discover Gideon is the Alpha wolf of the Talon Pack. As a submissive, her strength lies in her heart, not her claws. But if her new Pack disagrees or disapproves, the consequences could be fatal.

As the worlds Brie and Gideon have always known begin to shift, they must face their challenges together in order to help their Pack and seal their bond. But when the Pack is threatened from the inside, Gideon doesn’t know who he can trust and Brie’s life is could be forfeit in the crossfire. It will take the strength of an Alpha and the courage of his mate to realize where true loyalties lie.

Gideon Brentwood, the Alpha of the Talon pack never expected his fated mate to be a submissive, let alone be one from another pack. Brie Jamerson, daughter of Willow and Jasper of the Redwood Pack knew who her fated mate was since she was seventeen years old. She never acted on it because, one she is a submissive wolf and two, he is an Alpha of the Talon Pack. It was her belief that Alphas’ and  Submissives’ never mated. It was unheard of. So besides her best friend/cousin Charlotte, no one knew until years later when her family went to the Talon territory to discuss business.

Suspense, ✔. Drama, ✔. Passion, ✔. Envy, ✔. An evil plot to rule the world, ✔. All and all Carrie Ann Ryan delivers. I don’t know how she can knock out hits like she does, but please if it involves keeping us with the Redwoods and now the Talons; keep them coming.

I really enjoyed that we were able to grow with Gideon and Brie on their becoming one within their relationship. But most importantly, I enjoyed how Brie was able to develop a relationship with in her new pack whilst also growing in her abilities as an Alpha/Submissive. She definitely threw out the preconceived notions that the elders and even her cousin Finn threw in her face. The Brentwood’s are growing on me and I look forward to reading more about them, especially with what’s to come.

Review of Cat 🐱 Haus by Cat Johnson

C__Data_Users_DefApps_AppData_INTERNETEXPLORER_Temp_Saved Images_81Ejnvsfq5L__SL160_I loved this story. John and Cate must remove the wall around their hearts in order to let love in. Both feel, for Cate her profession and for John reasons unknown; they do not deserve love. When emotions become high and jealousy becomes a huge factor; a decision must be made. Thankfully, at the advise of one of Cate’s clients, a decision was made. I loved, what I want to call the partial ending. Please be a book four to let us know John’s reasoning and how the true happy ever after “Pretty Woman” ending could be.

Want to take a peek behind that red velvet curtain? Come join our Club Alpha authors as they take you into the inner sanctums of some of the hottest, most exclusive clubs you’ll ever have the privilege of witnessing. Some come for the discipline, some come for the thrill, some come to find sweet passion, but all go away initiated in the ways of love. 
 
Surrender to the dominance of these thirteen novels from bestselling authors including New York Times and USA Today bestsellers Adriana Hunter, Selena Kitt and Terry Towers. 
 
Club Alpha isn’t a place—it’s a state of mind you’re going to want to visit again and again. 
 
Claiming His Tease by Amy Valenti – Josh is all Dom and sexy as hell, and he’s prepared to wait for Lena to come to him. All she has to do is kneel at his feet, and she’ll be his. But is she too stubborn to give him the satisfaction? 
Review:  
“You have me Sir.” said Lena.  This book had me puzzled at first.  I was truly optioning to skip to the next, but then BAM! I was hooked with he power play between Lena and Josh.  I had to see it “played” out. LOL : ) Lena’s character had me visualizing the geek with a naughty secret.  Josh, on the other hand, confused my visualization process until later in the story.  When it was stated that he had just arrived from London, I thought of this sexy Channing Tatum like man with a British accent, only to later be diffused by finding out he was just there on business.  Either way, he was sexy. : )
I liked the book overall and if this is what you like to read then it’s just for you.
 
Breaking Boundaries by Sienna Stapleton – With the hopes of expanding her sexual horizons, Sara books a weekend at a sexual therapy retreat. Once there, she quickly learns that the weekend will be much more than she bargained for.
Review:
Sarah is a woman who has been raised that being a curvy woman is not sexy.  Well, thank God her lover doesn’t feel that way.  Adam truly loves her and just wants to show her how much, but because of the teachings of Sara‘s mother, her self esteem is broken and it is affecting their sex life.  To remedy this, Sara registered for what she thought was a simple couples retreat.  Little did she know that she would be in for one glorious weekend involving sexual exploratory BDSM.  The love between Sara and Adam that was once on shaky ground grows much more solid and stronger.  One thing that I like about reading these books is that I get to read an new author and experience various reading styles.  
 
The Billionaires’ Club: Deceiving Him by Terry Towers – Going under cover, Lexie finds herself in a world like none other. After she meets the sexy billionaire Vince and is introduced to unimaginable pleasures, can she still go through with her expose? 
Review:
Fearing the loss of her job as a reporter, Lexie decided that she needed the story of all stories to present to her boss to secure her job.  A story of the elicit but very secluded “Billionaires’ Club”. You must be a member to get into this club and then have your active participation described by an identification badge.  This book proved that the art of deception comes with consequences and Lexie’s went by the name of Vince. Using the help of her BFF Nadine, who is a waitress at the club, Lexie was able to sneak in via the back door. The funny thing is that the badge that Nadine provided for her was not what she was ready for.  I look forward to reading part two of this series.
 
Club Soria by Emilia Kincade – Maya’s life is falling apart. She runs away to Thailand to find some peace. When she is invited to Club Soria, she doesn’t know what to expect. Her ‘awakening’ catches her entirely by surprise.
Review:
Maya thought that her life was falling apart when her jerk of a boyfriend decided that she wasn’t what he desired anymore.  After kicking him to the curb, she decided that she needed to get away and what better way to do that than to visit her sister in Thailand.  There, her sister thought that she needed to get out and have fun at a place called Club Soria. This club was owned and operated by a secretive billionaire named Javier. Little did Maya know that Javier would be the answer that she needed to make her feel alive.
 
The Sybian Club by Selena Kitt – Tasha convinces husband, Max, to buy a Sybian, starting a club to pay for it. Friend Ashley helps but Tasha doesn’t know how to tell Max she wants to add more to their sex life than just a new toy. 
His Desire, her Surrender by Malia Mallory – When Marcus tracks Tabitha down to resume the sizzling affair they began in the islands, can Tabitha prove that she has what it takes to be both his partner and his submissive? 
 
Escape by PJ Adams – Just who is the masked stranger at Club Extraordinaire and what is it that draws Julie so powerfully? Is it the way he’s so confident and masterful? Or is it that he reminds her so strongly of her ex? 
 
Pavlov by Arden Aoide – Tyrone Parker had obstinacy down to an art and was the reigning champion of Having the Last Word. He had his own definition of Domination that had women running away fast. Until the one that stayed. 
Control: Masters of the Sanctuary by Elsa Day – When Amy sneaks into the sanctuary, she has no idea what she’s in for. She runs into trouble, and Master J is the only one who can help her. But his health comes with a price: her total submission. 
 
At the Billionaire’s Command by Juliette Jaye – Recent small town transplant to New York City Sophie never expects to hook up with the billionaire boss of her company. But the even bigger surprise is when she finds herself falling in love with him. 
 
Rough Edges by Adriana Hunter – I didn’t expect to wake up, unable to move. When he told me that I was a player in his wicked game I knew I had made a mistake. I didn’t ask for this. I didn’t want it. At least not in the beginning. 
 
Club Red by Sophie Sawyer – When curvy beauty Tori visits Club Red for no-strings fun, the last thing she expects is to find everything she ever wanted.
 
Precious Pet by Candy Quinn – What started as a way to make some extra money ended with a demi-god opening college student Rachael’s mind to the bliss and freedom of submission.

Review: The other books in the box set were alright. Some took me over the edge, but the others didn’t get me at all.  I guess I am just prone to paranormal romance novels. So if you are into BDSM then I guess this box set is for you.

TheHuntedHeartThe Hunted Heart
Redwood Pack Book 7.7

Digitally: Amazon US │Amazon UK │Barnes & Noble │ ARe │ Kobo │ iBooks │ Google Play

Emeline might have been alive hundreds of years, but she’s never really lived. Using her knowledge and research, she helped save the Redwood Pack from devastation. However, she’s never felt whole. Not since she lost her mate so long ago. Now there is a new, younger wolf, entering her life and it will take more than her nose in a book to figure out the warmth in her heart is much more than a promise of a new feeling. It’s fate.

Noah has known Emeline was his mate since he first saw her, only he doesn’t know if she feels the same. He’s always been on the fringes of those in power in the Pack and has enjoyed it. Now he’s become an integral piece and wants to find a way to bring Emeline with him. Her reluctance in dating a much younger wolf isn’t the only hurdle in his way.

When he finally takes the step, he’ll have to pray she finds the connection and lets fate save them both. As they find their way to a mating bond, a player from the past is out to hold them back and everything they thought they’d had might be lost forever.

Carrie Ann Ryan’s “Tangled Innocence”

 

Dante’s Circle Book 4

 

Humans aren’t as alone as they choose to believe. Every human possesses a trait of supernatural that lays dormant within their genetic make-up. Centuries of diluting and breeding have allowed humans to think they are alone and untouched by magic. But what happens when something changes?

 

As one of the seven lightning struck women, Nadie Morgan has known for a while now that her fate would be forever changed…and revolve around a certain dragon. From the first time Dante Bell saw Nadie, he knew she was the one for him. There’s just one problem–there’s another in his life he’s waiting on as well.

 

When Jace Goodwin, a bear shifter and Mediator, finally comes back to the human realm after years away under circumstances out of his control, his first stop is to Dante’s Circle where he not only finds his dragon, but the woman they both have been waiting for.

 

Once secrets are told and the sparks fly, Nadie’s new life becomes something she never thought possible. However there’s another realm at play and Jace and Nadie’s dragon will have to fight harder than he’s ever fought before to keep the life he’s waited eons for.

 

Warning: Contains one not-so-innocent human, a bear known for his bear-hugs, a tattooed and pierced dragon with a fiery temper, and a connection so explosive, you’ll be fanning yourself from page one.

Review:

Well it was definitely worth the wait! Carrie Ann Ryan hit it out of the park again! I’ve waited for the story of Dante and Nadie for so long. There was so much pent up energy as their story line drew near. The stares between the two, back and forth at the bar during the girls night out sequences. And to add another mate to the mix?! Wow, Carrie Ann, what sugar you drinking on to inspire your characters? I want some of that! LOL But Seriously, she never let’s me down with her novel’s and that’s why she is a best seller.

This story had it all and I think the best fight sequences out of all the Dante’s Circle Series. The fact that even after a very long wait to be able to mate with Nadie and Jace, the possibility of deterring it longer would make any man/dragon go off the deep end. Nadie unable to wait any long for Dante to make the first move, chose to make  a decision that could cost them the possibility of a relationship in the long run. And let’s not forget the missing link that Nadie is not even made aware of, Jace. He was finishing up his duties as a Mediator of the Realms that took sometimes years to complete.

Okay Carrie Ann Ryan, on to the next.  Looking forward to the next installment of Dante’s Circle. 🙂

Cover Reveal: Fighting Fate

FightingFate72Fighting Fate

Redwood Pack Series, Book 7

Coming: June 17, 2014

With her blue-black hair and striking green eyes, Cailin Jamenson is the epitome of beauty and the exemplar of strength. She has fought the enforced boundaries of being the lone Jamenson daughter and Redwood Pack princess, but it is the potential future with the dark wolf in her path that threatens everything she thought she desired.

Logan Anderson’s own darkness provided the reasoning for his abandonment of his former Pack, the Talons. Now, newly accepted into the Redwood Pack, this jade-eyed wolf and all she represents could be his own undoing.

In this final installment of the Redwood Pack, unimaginable tragedy strikes, and the two wolves who have fought the longest for their independence now face the uncertainty of fate and the epic battle that could end the war… and their lives.
